LEGACY WEEKENDS” WILL CELEBRATE AFL’S 50TH ANNIVERSARY
Posted by Mike Florio on February 5, 2009, 10:48 p.m.
In a news release announcing the team’s 50th anniversary logo, the Chargers revealed that, during the 2009 regular season, the original AFL franchises will each conduct multiple “Legacy Weekends.”

On these occasions — once at home and once on the road for each original AFL franchise — the teams will wear a throwback uniform.

The Chargers will wear a uniform based on their 1963 AFL championship team.

Meanwhile, the 50th anniversary logo will be affixed each week to the Chargers’ uniforms. Here it is.

Not a whole lot of difference between our throwbacks and our current uni's.

Grey facemasks and thinner piping / lack of cuffs on the jerseys is about it.

a real "throwback" would be to actually win a home game.

Agreed...no need to change what's perfect.

Not a uni topic, but would love to see the Chiefs use Lenny's old "Tombstone Huddle" during a special game in '09.

Forget which game, but a couple of years ago, they did it on the first huddle; very cool to see Trent Green hunched over issuing orders.

It'd be interesting if they wore the old Dallas Texans uniforms. I don't have any idea what they look like, because i haven't found a photo online. But it's a thought.

Agreed.

I believe the play following that special "huddle" was a pick though......

Nevermind. Just found this on wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logos_and_uniforms_of_the_Kansas_City_Chiefs

"Originally, Hunt chose Columbia Blue and Orange for the Texans' uniforms, but Bud Adams chose the colors for his Houston Oilers franchise.[1] Hunt reverted to red and gold for the Texans' uniforms, which even after the team relocated to Kansas City, remain as the franchise's colors to this day.[1]"

When the franchise moved in 1963, Taylor was commissioned to produce a new logo that remained strikingly similar to his original incarnation. Taylor’s new rendition featured a Native American (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Native_Americans_in_the_United_States) figure running with the same stride and holding the pigskin in the same manner as the gunslinger with the states of Missouri (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missouri), Kansas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kansas), Nebraska (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nebraska), Oklahoma (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oklahoma), Iowa (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iowa) and Arkansas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arkansas) serving as his backdrop. This logo was utilized prominently during the 1960s and was affixed to the club’s Swope Park (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swope_Park) headquarters on 63rd Street before the club moved to Arrowhead Stadium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arrowhead_Stadium) in 1972 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1972_Kansas_City_Chiefs_season). The logo, embedded in the grass, still remains off the highway to this day.

where exactly is this?
